Default Ships in Port

Trying to find out what other ships will be at Port Everglades day we sail (need to determine if there will be a line for shuttle at Amerisuites). Can someone tell me best stie to use?

thanks,

We've never had a problem with AmeriSuites. They have a brand-new bus, as of the last couple of weeks, that accomodates about 12 and the "old" shuttle bus, too.

The front desk people are really nice. Ask them. The number of ships in port doesn't have anything to do with the number of people using AmeriSuites and their shuttle service.

If all else fails, take a taxi. About $7. And if you paid over $45, you were hosed

I paid over $45 but can't complain about 20 days of free parking.

Don:

Looked at that site. Very out of date. Could not find port calendar like I have found on other port's sites.

Found it. Both icruise and mytravelco had the info. Luckily, only other ship in port will be Monarch of the Seas.

thanks,
marc

Pamda... sailing off on the Seven Seas Mariner on a back to back and worrying about taking a shuttle from the Amerisuites to the pier... well... that requires a certain gen-ais se qua. Common, marc... arrive (or depart) in style! ()

Ernie:

I would need a second cab JUST for the luggage. Wife is sure taking adantage of this no flying to the port. Every time I want to add an electronic gadget, she reminds me that there is no problem overpacking clothes since we are not flying. Also, we went through the shore excursions yesterday. With 11 days in port, and visiting ports we have never been to, our cost for selected excursions comes to $1340 for the two of us (including $220 per person for helicopter from Antigua to volcano on Montserratt). Compared prices to what others paid for similar excursions (as noted on the various port and cruise line msg boards) and Radisson's are a little cheaper. Therefore, I have no guilt about using shuttle from Amerisuites (would have stayed at Marriott if they would provide free parking (12X20=240=ouch).

Ernie ...

Now that we've finally met in person, I'm sure you'd agree that I have that certain je nais giveadarn pas.

"Oh, Ernie, is that YOUR drink?"

Marc ... are you LANDING on Montserrat? Or just a fly-over?

Pamda:

Fly over. 50 minute trip. Overview on Radisson site is a pretty good summary of trip. Entire trip is over the exclusion zone. Goes over volcano, Plymouth, Windy Hill, Long Ground, and Bramble. Also goes down the runway at the old airport

Even with the price, wife still wants to do it.

Don, found more up to date info on Port linked off CM site thru Broward County site.

I think that's the old "donne moi votre Jean Walker Noir avec ice" syndrome. (Cannot, for the life of me remember the French word for "ice"... I know the Spanish) I still think it takes a certain panache to arrive at the Seven Seas Mariner in a mini-bus from the Amerisuites.... sort of like hitchhiking to the BA terminal at JFK to catch the early bird Concorde to London... sort of.

Ernie, knowing no French, I am at a disadvantage. Is that Johhny Walker Black or Blue?

I used to go to Las Vegas with an old friend. He always believed in arriving via taxi but would leave via hotel shuttle. I guess you're saying the same. I just think that the shuttle, whether Amerisuites or Marriott, is easier given that there won't be people also trying to get to other piers.

After Mariner, all other cruise snoots you will run into are pretenders.

Ernie:

"Ice" is "glace." Just think glacier.

And you generally don't have to worry about the "je n'ai pas." It's the "voulez-vous" that you've got to be careful of. But of course you'd never hear that from Pamda!
